The City Council also heard two items, which include:
Prohibition of commercial marijuana activities and imposing regulation for the personal cultivation of marijuana
The proposed zone text amendment would amend the city’s municipal code to prohibit all nonmedical cannabis activity, including cultivation, processing, manufacturing, storing, distribution, testing, transportation and the sale of nonmedical cannabis. This act is authorized to the city by the Adult Use of Marijuana Act.
In addition, the zone text amendment would also appeal and readopt new provisions prohibiting all commercial uses related to medical marijuana, including restrictions on personal growth.
The City Council voted 5-0 (with amendments) to move the ordinance for a second reading at the next meeting
Zone text amendment for the development standards and review process for the city’s single family residence zone
Two years ago, the City Council adopted a moratorium on the demolition of single family homes and the development of a new second story in the single family residence zone (R-1).

New business items included:
A debt management policy
This debt management policy is developed to provide guidance in the issuance and management of debt by the city. This policy establishes the conditions for the use of debt, and ensures that the debt capacity and affordability are adequately considered. The policy also ensures that the city minimizes its interest and issuance costs and ensures that the city maintains the highest possible credit rating.
Approved by a vote of 4-1, with Vice Mayor Harrington voting against the motion
A request to approve the fiscal year 2017-18 Senate Bill 1 project list and to amend the fiscal year 2017-18 budget to include the Senate Bill 1 project list
Senate Bill 1, also known as the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, gathers a portion of funds generated by increased fuel taxes and vehicle registration fees that are distributed annually to eligible cities and counties for basic road maintenance, rehabilitation and other critical safety road projects. The city is currently estimated to receive $228,399, which will be used to resurface 1.5 miles of pavement.
Staff recommends that the City Council approve the project list to include the additional funds provided by SB 1.
